There is a large vegetarian and vegan community out there who suffer from autoimmune issues and are looking for a healing option that coincides with their lifestyle, beliefs, and food choices. After a good amount of vegetarians and vegans reached out to me looking advice I scoured the internet for proof that healing alopecia areata as a vegetarian or vegan could be done. I found Nicolas Huart, who graciously shared his experience with me here at GreenBananaGirl.com. Yes, You Can Heal Alopecia Areata as a Vegan or Vegetarian. (Nicolas Healed His as a Vegan) Most people are familiar with healing alopecia areata using the AIP diet, which is the eating plan…
If you are starting to read or research about the AIP diet or AutoImmune Protocol you know it is a diet that is meant to bring down your inflammation. By eliminating food items such as dairy, gluten, sugar, soy, processed foods, nightshades, legumes, nuts and seeds, AIP rebuilds your gut, balances your hormones and gives you a nutrient dense diet to combat inflammation. If you are a vegetarian or vegan that pretty much cuts out half your food options. So the question then is: Is the AIP diet for vegetarians or vegans doable?
